4: Beyond the Leaving Age
No one need attend school after the age of 16. But at 16 education has only just begun. More and more people are demanding opportunities to further their education. Teenagers in particular want to improve their qualifications, people wanting to switch jobs want new qualifications, and above all there are increasing numbers who simply want to study or develop skills for fun, but with professional help.
This programme, the last of the series, reviews what is being provided and where developments may be expected. Producer STANLEY WILLIAMSON
